Because of an exclusive rate available only to Protecting Americas Children & K-9s, Inc. each donation of $800 makes it possible to provide a complete vest to one K-9 unit in the United States. Each vest has a value between $1795 – $2234 and a warranty of 5 years. We custom-fit each K-9 vest, so the bulletproof parts cover the vital organs. Each vest includes patches for their department. In addition, K-9 units can also request Glacier Tek® K-9 Cooling Vests, collapsible water bowls, heating blankets, K-9 trauma kits, and many other K-9 related products. These additional expenses are usually beyond the budgetary limits of many law enforcement entities. Therefore, this is why we need YOUR support to protect these brave K-9s.

Law enforcement departments who want to request safety & safety resources should fill out the “K-9 Request Form” under “Causes.”
